Hypnobirthing & Yoga Teacher Based in Glasgow
Hi! I'm so glad you stopped by! I'm Amanda and my mission is to spread calm & confidence to others, be that during pregnancy or for life!
MIND - BODY - BABY
I run hypnobirthing, antenatal classes and birth preparation workshops. Working as a midwife for 7 years gave me huge insight to understand the complex, sensitive nature of birth & I have the knowledge and compassion to help you on your journey. Pregnancy and birth are life events and they should be celebrated as such! Hypnobirthing is a complete course that gives you the tools to navigate this experience and find excitement for the adventure ahead. I am so passionate about reducing fears around birth and helping you reclaim your power and confidence in this chapter of your life. My sessions are light hearted and informative so you have fun while learning about the amazing-ness of birth!
MIND - BODY - BABY
I also offer yoga classes to the non-pregnant population (but can adapt class to suit you if you attend when pregnant) as a way to bring movement, breathwork and relaxation together to find some calm amongst the chaos of modern life. I use yoga to help my mental and physical health and love the way I can connect with myself and others through this beautiful, spiritual practice.

Private Hypnobirthing Course - Live online - Investment £250 per couple
This is a full birth preparation course that includes antenatal education as well as relaxation techniques to promote a positive birth experience and gives you the confidence to make informed decisions. Birth is a powerful and transformative experience and often modern systems and practices get in the way of allowing this to unfold. Hypnobirthing is a practice done during pregnancy that reconnects you to your body's ability and reaffirms this natural event. The beauty of this course is that it can be practiced and have benefits no matter what birth you have. It can be booked at any time during pregnancy, the sooner - the more time you will have to practice before the birth!
I like to work one on one with couples as it allows me to take the time to personalise the information for your situation and means the time of the course can be flexible to meet your needs.

Pregnancy Relaxation Call
If you are looking for a bit of calm time, this hour is a lovely way to take some time to rest, connect with your breath and your bump and enjoy a lovely pregnancy meditation script. I like to think of relaxation scripts as a massage for the mind!
£20 for private 60 minute relaxation call - email email@example.com for an appointment
Relaxation can be a wonderful tool to use to increase your oxytocin, especially towards the end of pregnancy when nerves may be high and there may be pressure around induction. When fully relaxed, labour is more likely to begin naturally.
